SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An all-time record of nearly 78,000 prospective freshman and undergraduate transfers applied to San Diego State University for the fall 2014 semester, the school announced Tuesday.
The 77,959 applications received before the Nov. 30 deadline was nearly 5 percent higher than last year, when the previous record was set, according to SDSU. The hopefuls include 55,719 freshmen and 21,221 upper-division transfer students, along with a number of international students and people looking for a second bachelor's degree, school officials said.
"We are excited to see this record interest in our academic programs," SDSU President Elliot Hirshman said. "This interest is a testament to the academic and professional success of our students and alumni, our university's growing national reputation and the dedicated efforts of our talented faculty and staff members."
According to SDSU, applicants who are accepted will be notified by March.
